The left hand of The Spirit of America Doughboy Statue is cracked after it was vandalized this weekend. Pettis County Presiding Commissioner David Dick said the base of the statue is cracked all the way around and the Doughboy, which sits on the lawn of the Pettis County Courthouse, will have to be removed from its granite base for repair.
